Rugby Kenya: Safari 7s are back this November

As announced by Kenya Rugby Union interim CEO Sylvia Kamau last week, Africa’s elite 7s tournament is back this November. After missing out in 2017, the Safari 7s will take place at Ngong Road, RFUEA Grounds, in Nairobi from 10th to 12th November.

A host of teams have been invited for this event amongst which are the reigning Africa 7s champions, Uganda. “We have sent invites to teams like Portugal, Namibia, Ireland, Wales, Emerging Boks, Spain, Uganda, Blue Bulls Samurai, University of Jo’burg and Western Province. Looking at the invite also is USA Sevens who are looking at giving us a team even if it’s their second team,” said Sylvia Kamau.

“The Safari Sevens returns to its spiritual home after an eight year hiatus that saw the tournament played at the Nyayo and Kasarani Stadiums in the intervening years from 2011 to 2016. Last year’s event couldn’t take off due to the prevailing political climate in the country. The return of the tournament to the RFUEA Ground is one that is bound to trigger nostalgia, an electric atmosphere both on and off the pitch,something to look forward to.”

The tournament didn’t happen last year as the organizing team considered security reasons since the country was going through an election period.
